Money is the number one issue that couples may argue about. One person may not work, one person may earn considerably more than the other. One partner may be a spender and the other a saver. Computing how expenses will be divided may need help from a financial advisor.
Money arguments may have more to do with control or power issues. As in any conflict, talk, listen and don’t attack. And discuss finances before the wedding.
